Authorities in Newark are seeking the public's help locating a Bronx man they say robbed two victims at gunpoint and tied them up with cord.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of John Mingo, 32, who is accused of wielding a gun when he robbed two men of their personal property and tied them up with cord on the 100 block of Newton Street around 12:15 a.m. Sunday, Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F. Ambrose said in a release. 

The victims were treated at University Hospital and have since been released, authorities said.

Mingo is wanted on charges of robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, criminal restraint, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, Ambrose said.
